Ex-Homicide Detective Frank Langer’s life is a mess. A year ago he was placed on extended medical leave from the Vancouver Homicide Squad after a mental breakdown. Six months later his wife left him. Now he spends his days drinking and chain-smoking, and his nights waking up screaming from a horrific recurring nightmare.
The guys at the Squad think he’s lost it and will probably never return. So when Frank shows up one day with a wild story about a conspiracy to kidnap and murder babies, they pat him on the back and tell him to go home…
In an energy-starved future, Richard Hampton’s world is blown apart when his younger brother Danny disappears and the police are too busy trying to keep a lid on a hungry, overcrowded city to search for him.
Nightclub bouncer Jackson Reilly’s world revolves around drinking, smoking dope, and riding his motorcycle. Once a child piano prodigy, he gave it all up at age thirteen, and he’s been at war with the rest of the world ever since. A re-connection with his aging Auntie Jo, who once played piano with the cream of the fifties’ jazz scene makes him realize that what he’s really been battling for all those years is his own destiny.
Jackson finally learns the meaning of ‘follow your bliss’, but has the lesson come too late?
I was born in Victoria, BC, Canada. At the age of 19 I spent a year and a half traveling overland from London England to Australia, passing through many places in the news today, including Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and the Swat valley in Pakistan. Returning to Canada I worked at an amazing variety of jobs, from cab driver to land surveyor to accordion salesman to web software developer, and, of course, author.
I’m the author of one novel, ELDORADO, one novella, CHOPPER MUSIC, and a number of short stories. My latest novel, THE ARX, is due to be released on August 15th.
